Golden State Warriors first-round draft pick Nemanja Nedovic is ready for the NBA–at least that’s what he thinks.
Nedovic said if it is up to him, he’d play for the Warriors next year. “I’m ready.”

Nedovic, who was selected 30th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft, plans to be at Summer League, according to Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com.
Nemanja Nedovic, first-round pick of the Warriors, said he plans to be at summer league but no decision whether he comes for 2013-14.

That’s good news for the Warriors, who weren’t initially sure if their first-round pick was going to be a part of the Summer League team. Summer League action begins on July 13.
The Warriors aren’t sure if he will join the team for the 2013-14 season. As I alluded to, he thinks he’s ready, but the Summer League should shed some light on his readiness.
Nedovic has been dubbed the “European Derrick Rose” by multiple people, for what it’s worth. He’s an athletic 6’3″ guard with a knack for getting to the rim, but his shot needs some fine-tuning.
Additionally, Nedovic might have an impact regarding Jarrett Jack, who’s set to test the free-agent waters. If Nedovic proves he’s ready, then the Warriors might not have a need for Jack–if he doesn’t already sign.
